Hullabaloo 2017

Let’s Hullabaloo! Our yam-packed fall fest is back for a sixth year of fun with all the fixins. On October 14 and 15, they are celebrating their harvest part with a bunch of beer, food, and live music. Flip on your flannel and let’s get this thing started.

BREWS
We’ll be pouring all your favorite Indeed beers, plus seasonal sippers Yamma Jamma, Oktoberfest, Fresh Hop, and Rum King. For those looking for extra special brews, the cask wall will be back and buzzing with fun and fall-inspired infusions. A quick reminder that Rum King releases in cans this year, so there will be no bottle sales at the brewery.

FOOD
To keep you fueled up to get down, our friends from The Blue Door Pub will be here slinging them heavenly Hullabalucys and totchos for your pleasure. Aki’s BreadHaus – German Style Baking will be on site with warm, salty (and vegan!) soft pretzels with delish Day Tripper mustard.

ACTIVITIES
In order to entertain our tiny humans, we’ll have our annual decoration of Mr. Yamma Jamma heads, as well as a visit from our pals at GetKnit Events. They’ll be setting up a free craft station on Sunday from 12-4pm for the kiddos and inner-kiddos alike.

Feds force Indeed to change name of LSD, because drugs

Indeed Brewing Company can no longer market or label its seasonal spring beer as LSD Ale, reports The Pioneer Press.

The feds made the brewery change the name of its Lavender Sunflower Date Honey Ale so that the acronym was no longer apparent.

The reason the charge is happening now is because the brewery did not face federal regulation until it started to cross state lines. Even after they expanded beyond Minnesota, Indeed chose to keep LSD beer within the state. Regulators were concerned that the name implied there were drugs in the beer.

But as the brewery expanded to more Wisconsin markets and all of North Dakota this year, and they wanted to bring the beer to all their customers.

“We tried to find a way we could keep it on the label, like could we spell out the words and just bold the first letters,” Whisenand said. “But unfortunately we sell a regulated product and there’s not much you can do when the feds say no.”

Lavender, Sunflower Honey, and Dates Honey Ale used to only be available in 750-milliliter bottles, but will now be sold as four-packs of 16-ounce cans. It is also on tap at Indeed’s Northeast Minneapolis taproom.

Indeed Let it Ride IPA pedals back onto shelves with new Chuck U art

Indeed Let it Ride Cans

The days are getting longer, Girl Scout cookie order forms are making their way around the office, and if you needed another sign that spring is right around the corner, Indeed Brewing’s warm-weather seasonal IPA, Let it Ride, is back on store shelves.

This is Let it Ride’s first release since Indeed updated its branding last summer, and the cans are sporting a new design from local artist Chuck U.

At 90 IBUs and 6.8% ABV, Let it Ride IPA is massively hop-forward. The beer is brewed with mosaic, calypso, and el dorado hops and delivers aromas of blueberry, pear, and tropical fruits.

Let it Ride is already showing up on some store shelves and should be everywhere Indeed is sold by Feb. 22 through July when Let it Roll, Indeed’s cold-weather seasonal IPA, returns to take its place. The brewery is also releasing both beers in a mixed six-pack while they transition from one seasonal to the other.

Indeed Brewing Co. expands distribution to North Dakota, Western Minnesota

Indeed Brewing Company will start distributing to North Dakota starting in October, and Western Minnesota beginning November

Indeed Brewing Company announced today that it’s partnering with Johnson Brothers to expand its distribution territory to North Dakota.

Indeed will kick off the expansion at the Fargo Beer Fest on September 26, and will begin selling beer across North Dakota on October 1.

Beginning November 2, Indeed will also begin distributing to Western Minnesota, including Detroit Lakes, Moorhead, and Alexandria.

“We are thrilled to be representing Indeed Brewing,” Todd Johnson, COO of Johnson Brothers, said in the press release. “We’ve been admirers of these outstanding beers for a long time, and this is exciting news for beer lovers in North Dakota and Western Minnesota.”

Indeed co-founder and president Nathan Berndt grew up in Grand Forks and says the expansion feels like a homecoming of sorts. Co-founder Tom Whisenand also has North Dakota roots: his grandfather owned Park Package Liquor Store in Williston for 30 years and used to work with Johnson Brothers.

Indeed’s full lineup will be available, including seasonal offerings like Let it Roll IPA and Yamma Jamma Harvest Ale, specialty releases such as barrel-aged Rum King Imperial Stout, and the brewery’s three year-round beers, Dandy Lager Pale Lager, Midnight Ryder Black IPA, and Day Tripper Pale Ale.

Indeed Brewing Co. Breakfast Release for Burr Grinder Coffee Ale

unnamed-1

You won’t need to hit the snooze alarm on Saturday, February 15th. Indeed Brewing Company‘s new Burr Grinder Coffee Ale will wake you right up. Head down to Bryant Lake Bowl when doors open at 8am for breakfast and the very first taste of Indeed’s 2014 coffee ale, made with Dogwood Coffee.

“We wanted to do something a little different for the release of this beer,” said Indeed Brewing co-founder Rachel Anderson. “Burr Grinder delivers an intense coffee punch, so we thought a breakfast release was the perfect introduction.” Head Brewer Josh Bischoff used ground Colombia El Meridiano coffee beans in the brew kettle  before adding cold-press Dogwood NEON at the end of the brewing process giving the Burr Grinder notes of toasted caramel, ripe fruit, and a toffee sweetness.

“Dogwood brews some of the best coffee around, and we pride ourselves in using the best possible ingredients in our beer” said Indeed Brewing co-founder Nathan Berndt about the second year of working with their Northeast Minneapolis neighbor, Dogwood Coffee.

After the release at Bryant Lake Bowl, Burr Grinder will be available on draft and in 750 ML bottles the week of February 17. Burr Grinder will make its debut at the Indeed Brewing Company taproom on Thursday, February 20.

Bryant Lake Bowl is located at 810 W. Lake St. in Minneapolis, MN.
